What is considered a 'State significant site'?

The State Environmental Planning Policy (Major Project) 2005 provides for the Minister to declare an area to be a State significant site. State significant sites are typically sites that the Minister for Planning considers may have a wider social, economic or environmental significance for the community, for example universities, hospitals, employment precincts and major residential developments. The site may also have redevelopment significance important to implementing State planning objectives.
